Last night was our second time here and we are glad we returned to another excellent meal. The seared tuna was excellent and plenty of it. I suppose the meat dishes are also good but I will stick to the seafood dishes because they are among the best. The wine list is also quite good as is the attentive service.... More

Catch has a great reputation but it did not live up to its potential. Food and experience was ok but not worth the expense. There are better options around town if you are going to put forth the money.

Awesome crab cakes and ribs! If your ever in the Wilmington area, this place is a hidden gem. I mostly recommend the ribs (best I've ever had).

An inconspicuous spot in a small strip shopping center, it was a great place for our party of 17 to have dinner. We were seated at two adjacent tables in a semi-private room (half-wall separating us from other diners), and were promptly tended to by two courteous and capable servers. I can't speak to all of the food, but four... More

Waited 15 min for a drink order, an unacceptable amount of time in an upscale restaurant. The menu does warn you that they are small so be patient but it was a Monday evening 7:45 and they were only about 30% full. They have a great pesto olive oil on the table but we waited 15 more minutes after ordering... More

I've dined here when the food was nothing short of "out of this world"…I've dined here when my entree was over-cooked. Been here when the service was prompt and smart….been here when it was aloof. Been here when the staff was friendly, and when it was snobby. That's all well and good, providing the pricing changes with the experience. However,... More

We really enjoyed the dinner we had at Catch, would recommend it to everyone!! They are a cross between down home southern cuisine and the flare of a upscale restaurant. We have eaten here twice and brought out of town family the second time. They really enjoyed the twist on the food as well. We had a party of six... More

We traveled to Wilmington for the historic downtown and beaches, but Catch was high on list after such strong recommendations. Not sorry we made the reservation! It's outside of downtown, but a quick drive down the road in a quiet shopping center. The atmosphere is comfortable, intimate, and yet casual. Service and food were delicious! We met Chef Rhodes downtown... More

Food, drinks and service was outstanding. Only drawback was a seemingly high level of ambient noise...difficult to hold quiet discussion.
